Tuna Salad Pickle Boats

These Tuna Salad Pickle Boats are incredibly good appetizers. Small pickles are cut in half lengthwise, hollowed out, then filled with a delicious mix of tuna, mayo, Dijon, celery, lemon juice, and dill. This is one of my favorite recipes for tuna and pickles. Coming out juicy and delicious, these boats get my family hooked from the moment they’re served.
